CONDITION AND OTHER IMPORTANT DETAILS:

Before I go into details on the condition of this bike please bear in mind it’s age and the fact that this bicycle was meant to be appreciated for it’s originality as much as ACTUALLY BEING ABLE TO RIDE AND ENJOY WHAT IT WAS ORIGINALLY BUILT FOR. No worries about babying this whip, take it out for as many sunday rides as you like!

The chrome all looks good and shiny but shows signs of pitting here and there which is to be expected of a frame of this age. The decals on the DT are in very decent shape with only a few little bits missing here and there. The ST decals are a bit worse but still look nice despite the wear. The paint has a fair amount of scratches all over the frame BUT NOTHING MAJOR AND NO DENTS AT ALL!!

ALL THE TIME, MONEY AN EFFORT REQUIRED TO GET IT TO PROPER RIDING STATUS IS DONE. ASIDE FROM A LITTLE TUNE UP AND ANY PERSONAL DETAILS YOU’D LIKE TO CHANGE, THE BIKE IS READY TO ROLL!!!

The only parts that might not be original or EXACT NOS replacements are the seat post, chain and pedals.
